In addition to the environmental benefits of a healthy urban tree canopy (clean air, clean water and energy conservation), there are a myriad of social benefits that a community realizes as well, including:
- safe streets
- increased residential property values
- increased income to businesses
All of these benefits correlate to a healthier community where the people are active and healthy and the local economy is thriving.
The Treasure Valley Canopy Network is engaged with many local efforts -- enhancing our urban forest canopy, while maximizing benefits for our cities and towns.
